Forza Motorsport 6 features 460 Forzavista cars, 26 locations and up to 24 cars on track at any one time, all with working cockpits and full damage. But wait there is more! Forza Motorsport 6 will also include wet racing and nighttime races across a 70 hour career mode, all presented in 1080p at 60 frames per second.
Forza Motorsport 6 provides structure and context that was not seen in the previous version it makes every race feel meaningful which is a big improvement. This structure comes from a more organized career mode, with curated championships based around a particular theme, such as night racing or US circuits, and a broad progression towards ever-faster machinery.
As to the physics aren’t significantly different than Forza 5, the Cars feel natural and realistic in the way they respond to bumps, and we found a real feeling of weight and movement when driving the vehicles. Where Forza 6 really excels is in the physical interaction with the surrounding area around the track. Lose it and run into a tire wall, and watch the rubber explode up and around you. Tires bounce and roll and are stuck on track throughout the rest of the race. It is these little details that add to the sensation that you’re racing.
One of our favorite likes about the new game is the Drivatar system is simply amazing. By taking the Drivatar profiles from gamers across the globe, Turn 10 has a near infinite source of AI profiles with which to challenge racers. Drivatar isn’t new, it first appeared in Forza 5, but in this latest installment it is better than ever. Opposing racers behave like humans. They can be intimidated and bumped, and they make silly mistakes, just like you or I. An AI car can be leading the entire race and out of nowhere, come into a turn too hot and understeer off track.
There are little differences in lines through the corners, and the interactions in the first-corner scrum looks far more realistic than ever before.
Multiplayer also gets a small overhaul, with the new League events. These scheduled events are put together by Turn 10 Studios to offer a more competitive edge than typical online play.
This is a far more complete, entertaining, and engaging game than Forza 5. Microsoft’s brand new money-no-object racing simulator is released on September 15th.
